nursing pads?

Looking for recommendations on your favorite reusable nursing pads please. I tried some Gerber ones from Target with my last babe but leaked right through. The only ones that never leaked were Lansinoh, but I don't want to go the disposable route this time around. I'm overwhelmed by all the choices out there. I need some flood stopping, affordable pads

Re: nursing pads?

I love love love the Mother-ease stay-dry nursing pads. They're a little expensive but they last. I've been using mine for a year and they show hardly any wear. I love the stay-dry because it doesn't feel wet against my boob. They are not water-proof in the back though so if you leak a ton they might leak through. They've never leaked through for me though, they do hold a lot.

Re: nursing pads?

I would go the route of the ones with PUL backing. That's what mine are, but they are locally made and I'm not sure by who

Agreed! I have tried almost every brand and made my own as well, and these rock. The backing is PUL so definitely waterproof. I wear one pair for 24 hours and I am a BIG leaker, and these keep me dry, always. Read the reviews here, they are spot on: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20
